Smoulder, abstract art by Amy Crook

Smoulder, 7″x5″ watercolor, Primatek watercolor, and interference watercolor on hand-torn watercolor paper

This lovely, subtle Pathways painting is a reminder that even while the world burns, there’s still beauty in it.

The fiery colors are a mix of natural and artificial pigments, a limited palette with some soft sparkle and a lot of warmth that’s still muted enough to be sophisticated contemporary art.

This abstract painting would look stunning in your home or office.

The muted warmth of this piece is hard to capture, but the detail above shows it pretty well, along with the texture of watercolor and paper and even the tiny hints of sparkle hiding in the paint. Below, you can see it in a temporary frame, floated on a white background to show off the hand-torn, hand-painted edges.
